The Flying Scot
This part of my site deals with my aviation interests, I have
held a UK private pilots licence (PPL) since 1994 and have
been flying since 1990. I hold an Assistant Flying Instructors
rating but do not actively instruct these days.
I started flying sailplanes in 1989 and qualified for the
British Gliding Association Silver Certificate, then I found out
about Motor Gliders gained a UK PPL (Self Launching Motor
Gliders), I have several hundred hours as P1 in these
airplanes. I "upgraded" to a UK PPL Group "A" Landplanes licence
in 1992 and added an Assistant Flying Instructors rating in 1994.
I currently own an Aeronca 7FC, which I restored over a period
of 10 months during 1999/2000
My recent flying experience has been in America where I have
flown in Florida, The Bahamian Out Islands, and California.
I am still developing this part of the site, but a
resume of my qualifications and current experience together with
types flown, can be found
